I have a bunch of WAV files that Asterisk refuses to recognize/play. They were made on a Mac and play great in Windows, i.e. Windows Media Player.
If I convert them to GSM Asterisk plays them but they sound horrible so I’d like to keep them WAV.
I’m running Asterisk 1.8.
In my sip.conf file I do have the following lines:
;disallow=all ; First disallow all codecs
allow=ulaw ; Allow codecs in order of preference
The errors Asterisk reports are:
[Dec 29 14:18:43] WARNING: format_wav.c:108 check_header: Does not say fmt
[Dec 29 14:18:43] WARNING: file.c:371 fn_wrapper: Unable to open format wav
I guess my questions are:
- How do I know what kind of WAV files I have?
- I do have the Linux program “sox” but the amount of options you can specify are mind boggling. Is there a specific format I can give “sox” that Asterisk will definitely recognize?
Thanks in advance!
